Not only is the agreement at the bottom of this outright silly but the company is trying to punt "Linux Shell accounts" with an image of a 12 in ibook in the header.
Please don't take this as a Flame take this as constructive criticism

I was just surfing a bit around and came across this interresting sounding


here is a short description of what it is from their page:

"ENTROPY stands for Emerging Network To Reduce Orwellian Potency Yield and as
such describes the main goal of the project.

    * ENTROPY is developed as a response to increasing censorship and
surveillance in the internet. The program connects your computer to a network
of machines which all run this software. The ENTROPY network is running
parallel to the WWW and also other internet services like FTP, email, ICQ.
* For the user the ENTROPY network looks like a collection of WWW pages. The difference to the WWW however is that there are no accesses to central
servers. And this is why there is no site operator who could log who
downloaded what and when. Every computer taking part in the ENTROPY network (every node) is at the same time server, router for other nodes, caching
proxy and client for the user: that is You.
* After you gained some experience with the ENTROPY network, there are command line tools for you to insert whole directory trees into the network as a ENTROPY site. So ENTROPY does for you what a webspace provider does for you in the WWW - but without the storage and bandwidth costs and without any regulation or policy as to what kind of content you are allowed to publish. Everyone can contribute his own ENTROPY site for everybody else to browse through. The contents is stored in a distributed manner across all available and reachable nodes and no one can find out about who put up what contents
into the network [1]. Even if your node is not actively running, your
contents can be retrieved by others -- without knowing that it was actually
you who published the files. Of course this is only true if you do not
publish your name (or leave your name or other personal data in the files you

Have fun,
Juergen "
